of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan several years ago, what they've said is we hope we can play even on medicare and this is in congressional races and senate races. the idea is they want to be able to play even on it. no one saying on the republican side we think we can win 70% or 75% based on this. that's usually where politicians want to be. they want to have issues that resonate with 75% of the people, not half the people. so if they're even at that 50% mark which i don't think they are right now, that would be considered a level of victory. it's hard to go into areas with lots of seniors and say i want to change the way medicare is structured. these pe

people will be going after with mitt romney. also his claims about his health care plan and medicare. again, how exactly his plan would work out. but i think in particular, the question of the taxes and the budget and how that would affect people, when really put into pla place, that will be the main fact checking going forward. >> certainly both sides of this campaign, and there's certainly stuff in the papers today analyzing things that obama said that were untrue and what romney said were untrue. everybody has to take a fine tooth comb through the paper to go through that this morning. let's talk about romney's tax cut plan. he wants to cut everyone's rates by 20%. is it true that that would cost $5 trillion, yes or no? well, the question is, how do you shape it? the question for romney is not necessarily that he's telling an untruth but not giving us the details. he is saying he will reduce rates and it will not be a tax net decrease because he will get rid of loopholes. what loopholes will you get rid of? he talked about cutting funding for pbs. that's a teeny part of the budg b

his tax plan and about his medicare plan. it's not the argument you want to be taking out on the road after the first debate but it's the best they've got right now and of course i think you're going see a little bit of retooling of the debate strategy for the next debate which is just 11 days away. >> hat about that next debate, nancy between vice president joe biden and paul ryan. is the campaign concerned at all about that debate? >> reporter: i think they are a little concerned, norah, because they know that paul ryan is an aggressive debater. however, biden has been on the debate stage before. the problem with biden, as you know, he has a tendency to go off message from time to time so that's something they are a little bit worried about, especially because they can't afford another bad night. >> nancy, i'm struck by your comment that they say he didn't bring his a-game. any explanation why the president would have the first debate and not bring his a-game? >> reporter: this is something, gayle that afflicts a lot of sitting presidents. they have bad first debates. you saw this w
